The output for this recipe is about 3 jars. You can leave them in the fridge for about 1,5 week. Or if you properly sterilize the jars and lids, it will stay good for a month. But it is so tasty that you can better make another batch. We actually prefer to open the fridge at night and eat this apple sauce right from the jar… when no one sees. Haha!
